On Friday, May 3, more than 800 Madison Middle School students were treated to a health fair in place of their regular science classes. This is a day long in-school event bi-annually with the support of local businesses and organizations. Valerie Forshaw, principal of Madison had this to say, “This year’s health fair was one of our best yet. The combination of fun, physical activities and educational materials available helped make it a valuable and fun learning experience for our students.”
Under the direction of Health Fair co-chairs, Maggie Carroll and Randy Schulman and dozens of parent volunteers, students enjoyed 30 engaging and interactive exhibits. Topics included stress relief, exercise, healthy teeth, skin and eyes, good nutrition and healthy snacking, first aid and more.
